Parnicki’s women The review of Joanna Szewczyk’s Historiografia i mitologia kobiecości. Powieściopisarstwo Teodora Parnickiego [Historiography and mythology of femininity in the novels of Teodor Parnicki]
Languages of publication
The article is a critical analysis of a monograph by Joanna Szewczyk on the problem of femininity in Teodor Parnicki’s historical novels. The author suggests that Joanna Szewczyk precisely and multilaterally analysed the problem of feminine historiography and mythology in five novels. Using analytical tools created by feminist criticism the author combines the problem-focused approach with a very precise close reading of selected novels. As the author suggests such an approach is adequate and allows Szewczyk to present a convincing analysis of the problem of femininity in Parnicki’s prose.
